just remember that the middle classes are not

the problem. The article doesn't make this distinction but it is quite real. I'm very middle class but I know very well what it is like to be poor.

I've traveled, I've been to a good school (though on financial aid) but I also know what it is like to be homeless and to be unemployed and perhaps most relevant to today I know what it is like to go without health insurance.
